Just before I turned 30, it happened to me the first run through. After a crosscountry trip to visit my family in San Francisco, I went to slip my shoes back on as we approached landing and understood my feet had expand such a lot of I could scarcely fit them inside my tennis shoes. As I wobbled off the plane, I calculated that is the thing that I merit for being that individual who takes her shoes off on a flight. Yet, it before long occurred to me that this could prompt something that incessant fliers fear: Deep vein apoplexy, or DVT.
After significant stretches of standing by, as on a plane, DVT can happen “when a blood coagulation structures in at least one of the profound veins in your body, as a rule in your legs,” as indicated by the Mayo Clinic. On the off chance that one of these blood coagulations loosens up and makes a trip through your circulation system to your lungs, it can cause pneumonic embolism, which can be hazardous.
So for my 30th birthday celebration present to myself (womp, womp), I purchased my first pair of pressure socks: a modest, nylon pair off Amazon. They’re intended to help improve flow and forestall growing, particularly during extended periods (and as long as you remember to get up and move around during a flight), however the battle to get them on and off was genuine. They’re agonizingly close and harmed in the wake of wearing them for only a couple hours (the expression that strikes a chord when I wear them is “leg frankfurter”). Fortunately, along came Bombas—the brand that makes the ideal flake-out socks that never at any point descend—with spic and span pressure socks in 2019.
